This is what technology can do.

Day: Thursday, November 17th

Time: 4:36 pm

Medium: Facebook Messenger

Object: A colleague and friend who occupies a similar position to mine in a similar church

Subject: Work

Details: I interrupted him on my commute home with a flurry of pronouncements. He, ever so gracious, asked a series of clarifying questions and informed affirmations. The exchange ended when I arrived to pick up my daughter from school.
